Ateneumin Taidemuseo (Ateneum Art Museum of the Finnish National Gallery)

Ateneumin Taidemuseo (Ateneum Art Museum of the Finnish National Gallery) Review

The best traditional Finnish art is housed in this splendid neoclassical complex, one of three museums organized under the Finnish National Gallery umbrella. The gallery holds major European works, but the outstanding attraction is the Finnish art, particularly the works of Akseli Gallen-Kallela, inspired by the national epic Kalevala. The rustic portraits by Albert Edelfelt are enchanting, and many contemporary Finnish artists are well represented. The two other museums that make up the National Gallery are Kiasma and Synebrychoff.
